press secretary jay carney is getting grilled right now about obama care and the revelation that paper applications are processed in the same queue as people trying to enroll on the website. so here's a bit of that give and take. >> you said you can bypass the website and apply by phone or in person and it can be done in 25 minutes. but these memos say at the end of the day, we are all stuck in the same queue because they all have to go through the same portal. >> john, i get it, but the person who calls isn't the one who continues to wait after the paper application is filled. >> your mocking is entertaining, but the president said you can apply within 25 minutes, that was not true. >> wow. senior white house foreign affairs correspondent wendell goeler live at the white house. kind of firework-y. >> that's jonathan carl challenging carney on the president's advice to people who were having trouble with the healthcare.gov website. he advised them to go on the phone and give their information or give their information to someone in person. turns out as carl said, all the information ha
not on monday morning quarterbacking. >> jay carney has perhaps the toughest job in the u.s.a. defending obama care. bernie goldberg will tell us how he is doing. >> why can't they just opt out? if they don't want to say so help me god, they don't have to say that part. >> it's like you say why not just opt out of not robbing a bank. >> the caves in to antireligious zealots. crowley and colmes on that case. caution, you are about to enter the no spin zone. the factor begins right now. ♪ ♪ >> hi had, i'm bill o'reilly. thanks for watching us tonight. is it all unraveling for president obama? that is the subject of this evening's talking points memo. things are getting very bad for the obama administration. it's not a partisan statement. that is reality. the president's signature issue, affordable healthcare not so affordable. and even if you want to sign up, the computer chaos makes it it very hard to do so. but the main problem, the main problem is president obama himself. for years he has been saying to americans they are not going to have to undergo pain when the health insurance changes
as a result. as of today, the hite house pushed back expectations, taping them down and jay carney said that we don't expect those numbers to be very high and we never did. henry is at the white house with our report. reporter: embarrassed over the rollout of president obama signatureomestic achievement that only six people signed up on day one and was criticized by congressman darrell issa. >> there are no doubt there from a contractor about figures. if the website wasn working on october 1, that is a dog bites man story i said demanded to know why a parade of tp officials including kathleen sebelius did not give the information. >> if you have internal numbers and you're not willing to hear extra numbers, you are doing the kind of propaganda that this administration has done since day one. reporter: they say it will take a couple of weeks to nail down the details. >> why don't you put out a reasonable preliminary number and show us some transparency. >> we have a reasonable and accurate number as we promised we would on a monthly basis, consistent with the data release that you see ot
% of the people who were in the insurance market right now. and when i asked jay carney, does the president regret making these comments, he said, no, the president was not misleading the public and that the people who are receiving these letters in the mail right now saying that their plans are being changed or discontinued, that those people are being affected or impacted by the insurance companies, not obama care. here is what jay carney had to say. >> did the president mislead the american people when he made that comment repeatedly? >> no. the president was clear about a basic fact. if had you insurance you liked on an individual market and you wanted to keep that insurance through 2010, 2013, in perpetuity if you wanted to, you could. you were grandfathered in. what no -- health care reform could envision or could responsibly stipulate is that any plan that might come along in the next few years would be grandfathered in because that would undermine the basic premise of providing the minimum benefits for the american people. again, in all of these cases, what is absolutely true is that if yo
. >> edhenry and jay carney now. >> i didn't say that. i said people who are working on this issue are addressing the kind of question you just raised if that is the case. i think more broadly, we have acknowledged that health dht care.gov has not performed adequately and the president is not happen about that. secretary sebelius is not happy about that and that is why we have dedicated resources to fixing the existing problems and get that site operating in a level that will allow millions of americans to have the kind of user experience they deserve and need to have on line when they are shopping for affordable health insurance and enrolling in affordable health insurance plans. the purpose is not to build a web site. the call in centers and in person centers, it is to provide information to americans about the health care choices available to them. health care choice that were not available proir to the affordable care act. >> the president when he was trying to get the law passed. if you have health insurance you will be able to keep your plan. this morning david a xelrod press
. and the problem for the administration is, they can spin it and jay carney can refuse to give out the enrollment numbers and they can play games with the timing, but it doesn't matter. ultimately, the numbers are what they are. people are getting these notices. one of the other arguments that defenders of the law have been making lately, that if you get your insurance through your employer, you're really not affected by any of this. that's total and utter nonsense, as we just heard from her. but you hear this from everybody. we got a letter at the weekly standard telling us our premiums would be increasing. you talk to people across the country and they tell you their premiums will be increasing. this affects everybody. >> and it affected the politics here. listen to max baucus, democrat, talking about this rollout. >> i think it makes better sense. let's just see how much of this can be put together, how much humpty dumpty can be fixed in the next month. if it looks like humpty dumpty is not being put back better, maybe we should start thinking about delaying the penalties. it's not right to pe
is how it was explained by jay carney. >> the universe that you're talking about here is 5%. the whole insurance market, 5% of the population. >> first of all that 5% is 15 million people. the whole obamacare is to get 30 million uninsured insured. secondly, is it just the individual market that will lose their policy? >> no, small business plans are being forced to pool their workers with a larger pool of other workers. many small businesses right now are dropping their insurance -- >> it's not just small business or individuals, there are big companies, time warner, ibm, series, k mart, walgreens. none of those people can keep their current policies. >> those are companies making decisions of how they want to insure people. before obama care they could drop coverage at any time. before obama care they didn't have to offer insurance to their people and many didn't. we have 50 million uninsured people, and most of those are workers who didn't have coverage. so before obama care. >> simple question, are they going to be able to keep their coverage. >> the president doesn't say seres, dr
d.c. types going, we'll have jay carney on today. listen to how he answers the questions about this. this never happened. at least the person at the top and most of us, no, never. it is an answer you will never accept on anything in your own personal life. but it's very interesting for me to often hear how these guys and women answer questions that they're not really comfortable with. >> i will say this, does this matter? i think it matters, anything involving choosing a vice president inside politics, ittette goods how these candidates really think and make decisions which does matter for leadership and being in the white house. what is this about barack obama that he would never have replaced joe biden when he had these options. it may say loyalty. that's what it would have said about w. and george h.w. >> that's getting a little tired. i have to tell you. nobody cares more about this process than the man who's going to be on the ticket with whoever they choose. >> excellent point. excellent point. >> good conversation. >> i don't know if there's sand that deep to bury your head i
that a switch was discussed as were many options but he says it was never considered seriously. jay carney says the president dismissed the idea out of hand. i know for a fact that president obama never considered this, never thought about it, never entertained it. the vice president has been a partner of his from the 2008 campaign on, an excellent governing partner and excellent campaign partner. so again, campaigns test everything but as the book itself says this was never considered by the president. >> obama's former senior adviser, david plouffe, also denies any serious intent. plouffe tweeted "never any, any consideration of vice president of hillary rodham clinton switch." >>> congress is ramping up its investigation into the terror attacks on the u.s. consulate in benghazi, libya, as you'll recall, four americans including the u.s. ambassador to libya tide in that ferocious attack. and republicans critical of the white house response on the night of september 11th have demanded access to witnesses. well now they'll get their chance in just a couple of weeks, cia operatives who were on t
increase to be able to do it. >> reporter: white house press secretary jay carney, who is briefing now, says the affordable care act requirement that insurance plans cover things like maternity care and that they have no cap on lifetime expenses is what makes them more expensive. carney says many people will have better insurance or less cost and in some cases people whose cost goes up will receive government tax subsidies that actually reduce what they finally pay. gretchen? >> wendell, thanks so much for providing a lot of those answers for us. >>> speaking of the obama care website, now you see her, now you don't. the smiling young woman featured on obama care's website, guess what? she's gone now. scrubbed out in an apparent web do-over. in her place, the far less eye catching quartet of really brilliant icons. to sign up for obama care. the identity of the woman remains a big secret. hard to believe since most people in washington can never keep a secret. there's some speculation she was scrubbed from the site to keep her safe after she became the target of heated criticism of the
already had health insurance, you could keep your plan no matter what, spokesman jay carney acknowledged today that promise is not being kept. >> it's true that there are existing health care plans on the individual market that don't meet those minimum standards and therefore do not qualify. >> reporter: carney's admission came just hours after the president's long-time advisor david axelrod acknowledged on msnbc. >> the vast majority of people in this country are keeping their plans. >> reporter: which means others are not. even though the president said this when he was selling the law. >> if you like your health care plan, you will be able to keep your health care plan. period. no one will take it away. no matter what. >> reporter: republican senator ron johnson is now pushing legislation to grandfather as many consumers as possible into their current plans after reports of hundreds of thousands of people getting cancellation notices. among the 14 million people who'd buy their own coverage because they do not have employer-based insurance. while those mass cancellations raise doubts
? >> took it down that might be a story, too. he had said it so many times. jay carney and white house new talking point is look, we always said some of these programs, some of these plan were going to have to go aweigh. no there was never an asterisk next to the president's statement. he said plain and simple, if you like your health insurance coverage, you can keep it. >> do you think he believed that or do you think he was trying to be a little slippery? >> well, according to nbc's story that they unveiled, apparently there is communications within the white house where the president was briefed and was aware that millions of americans would lose the health insurance coverage that they liked. so, anybody with half a brain that studies the law knows that there were provisions in the law that would deem current health insurance programs as not acceptable under the auto fordable care act. do you believe that they have access today, tonight to how many people have enrolled in obama care? now, i know that november 15th is the date that the obama administration sets the rollout, that's what t
that jay carney said in response to this. >> the fact is we have been enormously cooperative and gone to extraordinary efforts to work with seven different, seven different congressional committees investigating what happened before, during, and after the benghazi attacks. including testimony of 13 different congressional hearings and participation in 40 staff briefings, and the provision of over 25,000 pages of documents. >> is the administration correct in what is -- >> candy? >> go ahead. >> i'll tell you right now. i mean, jay carney, well over a week, well after that had said this was not preplanned or premeditated, still blamed this on the video. so we still don't have answers why that information came out the way it did and the misrepresentations were made to the american people. but there's much information that hasn't come forward including why were security requests denied. provided access to these survivors. we've asked for months in trying to work cooperatively with the administration. what he said is not the case. it can't be that the executive branch hopes this goes away
're just talking about 5% of americans. here's how it was explained by jay carney. >> this universe you're talking about here is 5%. that's the whole individual insurance market, 5% of the upon -- of the population. >> that 5% represents 15 million people. the whole obamacare is to get 30 million. and that's the holy grail. secondly, is it just the individual market that is going to lose their policies? >> no. small business plans are being forced under the new regulations to pool their workers with a larger pool of other workers. if they buy in the states regulated by the states, their insurance can go up quite a bit. they can lose their plans. lots of companies are facing this now. >> dr. emanuel, it isn't just small business or the individuals. there are -- forgive me, sir -- there are big companies: time warner, i.b.m., sears, wal-mart, k-mart, wall green are all saying they're going to take their people off their insurance and put them in exchange. those are companies making decisions how they want to insure people -- >> because of the way obamacare works. >> let me finish. before
's white house briefing with jay carney. it was due to start at 12:30 eastern. it will get underway at 1:15. we expect lots of questions about the healthcare.gov website and the rollout of the health care law. centers for medicare and medicaid administrator marilyn tavenner testified about that liveit on c-span3. here is a look. >> thank you, chairman camp and ranking member levin and members of the committee. we launched on october 1st one. key provisions affordable care acthe the new marketplace where people without health insurance including those who could not afford it and not part after group plan could go to get affordable coverage. we know consumers are having difficulty enrolling via the marketplace website. it is important to note that the affordable care act however is however more than just a website. it create as new market which allows people to access quality, affordable health care. it i it allows them to have insurance options. it create as pooling of consumers into statewide group plans that i can spread the riss between sick people and healthy people, between youngli a
the press," david gregory, white house press secretary, jay carney, leigh gallagher and later, celebrity chef rocco dispirito. >> are you going to put on an apron and cook? >> yeah, i'm going to put on an apron and say mmm delicious. top stories from the politico playbook. bill karins is up now. >> as far as my forecast goes for today, if you are going to be traveling in the northeast, the airports are going to be a big issue especially this morning. we have strong thunderstorms with high winds that are going to blow through the big cities. as far as right now, they are located in central pennsylvania on interstate 81. they are going to head into the big city. not even lightning with the storm. it's a strong line of storms with winds gusting up to 60 miles per hour. winds are 36 in philly. 39 in buffalo. a windy day. it's very warm. feels like the spring feel with the humidity. when the front goes through, bad weather with it. you don't want to be under big trees with the winds gusting to 40 to 50 miles per hour. the rain is early today in the east. it's when the worst airport delays wil
. and white house press secretary jay carney now admitting this. >> what the president said and everybody said all along is that there are going to be changes brought along by the affordable care act that man mall. it's true there are existing healthcare plans on the minimum market that don't meet those minimum standards and don't qualify for the act. >> nice to see you, john. >> nice to be here. >> when are politicians going to realize we have videotape. >> i don't know. there was never any nuances. he never said most of you will be able to keep your plans or some of you can keep your plan if the government says it's good enough. he said all of you can keep it, end of story, period. at one point he said this is another quote from 2009, the government is not going to make you change plans under health reform. there was never any escape there or knew abc. now it's proving not to be true for millions of people. >> tough luck for those -- what does that mean for them? it sounds sort of mean. did he promise it. it's not like it was a slip. we got too many of them. >> exactly. right now we are seei
. >>> in the meantime the white house admitted in the form of jay carney, it's true, some medical policies don't meet the affordable care act's minimum standard and so they don't qualify, you won't be able to keep them. think about that. the white house is now admitting that they have known for, as it turns out, since 2010, according to nbc news and the "wall street journal," they knew back then that there are many, in fact millions of americans who would lose their health insurance policies. and yet the president was out all the way from 2009 until recently saying this. >> we will keep this promise to the american people. if you like your doctor, you will be able to keep your doctor. period. if you like your health care plan, you'll be able to keep your health care plan. period. no one will take it away. no matter what. first, if you're one of the more than 250 million americans who already have health insurance, you will keep your health insurance. this law will only make it more secure and more affordable. >> anyone frustrated yet? what was sold versus what's being told to the american people now
from president obama to press secretary jay carney insist they have not blocked any benghazi witnesses from talking to congressional investigators but then you hear u.s. senators talk most notably senator lindsey graham say that is always in. the administration is blocking the witnesses. one thing is clear. someone is fuming the facts or even lying big time. they can't both to be right to. stop the drama the back and forth, foot dragging and finger pointing. wouldwouldn't you like it put them in the same room. we deserve the truth and it would be nice to be spared the political drama. that's the problem with washington. it's all about the fight. never the facts. and that's my off the record comment tonight. if you have an important story or issue you think i should take off the record, you know where to find me, gretawire.com. tell me all about it and, while you see them here on fox news all the time. charles krauthammer is also a plulter is prize winning author. nice to see you charles? >> pleasure to be here. i like this set. >> pretty fancy. it's pretty nice. new home it? >> is my n
person signed up. jay carney had an answer though. listen to his explanation for these numbers. watch. >> what you have learned from selected cherry picked leaks from republican committee is that there are notes out there from a contractor that make estimates about figures related to enrollees in the early days of this process. the web site wasn't functioning very well on october 1st or october 2nd. in fact, it hasn't been functioning well in the first month since the launch. if the implication from this disclosure is that the web site wasn't working effectively on october 1st. i think that is a dog bites man story. we know that. and when we have fully compiled data about enrollment in the middle of this month for october. we're going to release it. >> how long does it take to get data from a web site. can i look up any web site. >> it has to work, first. >> you can find out who is on the site instantly. they claim they don't have these numbers. they are mad that the numbers that they don't have leaked. >> sometimes i feel sorry for jay carney sometimes i just look you are in a no-win
there was a protest. jay carney the president and susan rice claimed there was no evidence of an al qaeda connection, it was not preplanned it was a protest spawned by hateful video that went bad. my belief the fbi interviews two days after should be released to the congress so we can see if whether or not there was evidence that there was never a protest. >> is there another way to do th this? janet yellen leading the federal reserve arguably one of the most important positions leading in washington in the coming years ahead. >> absolutely, yes. >> is it fair to hold up one part of government in order to make a point on another? >> is it fair to tell the congress when you have a national security failure like this, we will not make available to you the people who survived the attack so you can make an independent inquiry, is it fair to withhold from the congress a separate branch of the government with oversight responsibilities, the basic evidence about what happened. i don't like holding up people, that's not in my nature. i've run out of ideas and i am not going to let this whole chapter close w
paraphernal parenthetically in a speech. now, today, jay carney, this is the most telling thing i've seen all year he said of the people losing their health insurance. the 5% currently purchased insurance on an individual market and that market has been like the wild west. it has been underregulated. in other words you're an outlaw if you're in that market. it's your fault you're losing your insurance. >> well, he's not saying it's your fault. he's saying we've now regulated the market. those people had no other choice but to go. they didn't get it from their employer. >> how does he know that? these are people freely bought insurance and he's saying you bought the wrong kind of insurance. maybe they like their insurance. >> i think what tucker has just established that it wasn't an unforced error but it was absolutely forced because they couldn't have got the 60 votes if they'd turned to the country and said by the way you cannot have what you have now because all the polls show, again, most americans had insurance and most were happy with it. >> the white house -- you referenced this, linda
the president's policies turned the united states into a welfare state. how is jay carney managing the media. goldberg with must-see analysis tonight on "the factor." 24/7. i'm sorry, i'm just really reluctant to try new things. really? what's wrong with trying new things? look! mommy's new vacuum! (cat screech) you feel that in your muscles? i do... drink water. it's a long story. well, not having branches let's us give you great rates and service. i'd like that. a new way to bank. a better way to save. ally bank. your money needs an ally. wow...look at you. i've always tried to give it my best shot. these days i'm living with a higher risk of stroke due to afib, a type of irregular heartbeat, not caused by a heart valve problem. at first, i took warfarin, but i wondered, "could i up my game?" my doctor told me about eliquis. and three important reasons to take eliquis instead. one, in a clinical trial, eliquis was proven to reduce the risk of stroke better than warfarin. two, eliquis had less major bleeding than warfarin. and three... unlike warfarin, there's no routine blood testing. [ ma
points since earlier this month. jay carney was asked about it and here's what mr. carney had to say. >> everybody gets hurt when there's dysfunction in washington. i think it's accurate to say that the dynamic has proven worse for republicans because i think it became so starkly clear by the actions they took that they were responsible for what happened but everybody gets hurt. >> am i to understand that president obama's bad poll numbers are the republicans' fault, too? is that actually what he's saying? >> well -- >> because he doesn't think president obama is part of the dysfunction. >> i think he said that everybody is suffering at this point. but what i want to point out is what i think is the problem for democrats, and i can say this i think very objectively, that the problem that we're going to see these numbers falling because the dysfunction is going to be shorthanded. people are going to associate this dysfunction with a broken website. that's not a good situation for the president to have such a trivial label attached to what is such a more macro dysfunctional environment
of them have been aired, showed in fact they weren't ready and they knew they weren't ready. today jay carney said the president was shown this website ahead of time as though it was ready. so figuring out who inside the organization knew but failed to communicate is important. but more importantly because there's so many other areas including risk of private information coming out in a website that isn't ready, we need to ask those questions and see the -- what's internally going on. >> mike rogers, chairman of the house and intelligence committee, asked tough questions about whether or not information people provide to that website about their social security numbers, their income, whatever, is really secured. you want to subpoena information to show that they knew in advance the security, the cybersecurity, was not adequate? >> exactly. we need to know who knew, why they should still be on the job. you know, there's more complex information. do you realize that tax i.d. information is in there, voter information is in there? this is a very important link to a also of private informa
obvious. you talk to people around town and you hear complaints like that constantly. bill: jay carney said it is preposterous and inaccurate. what did you think of his reput ball. >> like most of the things jay carney says these days. insurance companies are out there talking to the customers to expand health care, play blah. when the white house puting a gag order on someone. it doesn't you have to be absolutely mute. it means you can't say things we don't want you to say. that is what the insurance companies are being forced to do. they're not allowed to say what is really going on. not allowed to give their own numbers what is happening. not allowed to defend themselves from this new campaign of demonization. bill: what would be your solution for them? the insurance companies could speak with one voice, could they not? >> i don't have a huge amount of sympathy for the insurance companies. they made this bed. they're lying in it. this is one. props with crony capitalism, when you get in bed with the government the government gets to call the shots. at the same time you know they est
finance agency. it was 56-42. that was the cloture vote. they needed 60 to move forward. jay carney at the white house briefing which is wrapping up now over at the white house says the white house is, quote, enormous -- the news was enormously disappointing. that's from jay carney. and a tweet just a short while ago from the assistant leader in the house, james clyburn saying, quote, i'm disappointed by the senate vote today on the watt nomination. senate's coming back in at 2:00 p.m. eastern and you can follow that coverage on c-span-2. while we wait for the president, we'll take you back to the news room of mother jones from this morning's "washington journal." host: what is dark money? guest: dark money is this term that we've used to describe the secret money that is flowing through our elections at the state, at the local and of ourse at the national level. we've seen an explosion of what we call dark money and it's this money where we don't know who the donors are. we don't know in many cases how the money is actually being spent. and so we have made it a priority of ours her
to be lowering expectation. here's press secretary jay carney yesterday before the dismal numbers came out. >> if you're asking me will enrollment be low, the answer is, yes, because that was always going to be the case. martha: live from the white house with more on this, ed henry. it doesn't sound like the administration is on track to enroll its goal of seven million americans in obamacare this year, certainly. >> reporter: right. and what they're trying to do now, martha, is manage expectations. that's what jay carney was doing there. they're trying to compare it to mitt romney's situation oh so many years ago. in the early days people shopped around, talked to their spouse, and then they make a decision closer to january 1st. we'll see how all that pans out. but as you say, these early numbers are embarrassing. it's nothing short of embarrassing for the administration. day one, six people enrolled. and as you say, this is from the administration's own internal notes at the health and human services department. it was released by a republican critic, darrell issa, but he's getting info
't ready. jay carney said the president was shown this website ahead of time as though it was ready. so, figuring out who inside the organization knew but failed to communicate is important, but, more importantly, because so many other areas including the risk of private information coming out in a website that isn't ready. we really need to ask those questions and see what's internally going on. >> here is the department's response to the susubpoena. since october 10th, the committee has made five separate requests for a wide-range of documents, their timeline was not feasible given the vast scope of their request. it goes on. we are disappointed that the committee believes a subpoena was necessary, however, it does not change our intent to continue to cooperate with them to produce documents as we were able to. sebelius apologized for that house hearing for 3 1/2 hours yesterday morning. she will next go before the senate finance committee that is next wednesday. >>> senator ted cruz's father told supporters during his son's senate campaign that he would like to send president obama,
any insurance, press secretary jay carney essentially says that it makes no essential to replace no insurance with inadequate health insurance. >> no hospitalization, no, you know, let's go back to where insurance companies could throw you off whenever they want. maybe slap a annual limit on you. or, a lifetime limit. exclude you if you have a preexisting condition. charge you double if you're a woman, like that's, you know the world prior to the affordable care act that there, they want to return to because there has been no alternative offered. >> reporter: but the president's critics say setting minimum standards for health care coverage is hardly in the spirit of his promise if you like your plan you can keep it. senate minority leader mitch mcconnell says some of the standards themselves are questionable. he read a letter from one of his constituents on the senate floor. >> he is not happy about this at all. especially given the fact that a plan on the obamacare exchanges will dramatically drive up his insurance costs from $400 a month to more than $700 a month with zero sub
secretary jay carney. he said, kate, this is conflating disparate issues. >> brianna, thank you so much for that update. let's stay at the white house. the white house is responding to deadline pressure clarifying that americans will have until march 31st to sign up for obama care. this as the president's advisers are fighting back against another claim and denying that millions of people would lose coverage because of obama care. chief medical correspondent dr. sanjay gupta is joining us from atlanta. for more on this. a lot of confusion it seems like was created yesterday, sanjay. what are you hearing about the reports that millions of americans could be losing their existing coverage because that was a claim you heard over and over again from the president when he was campaigning for it. if you like your doctors and insurance plan, you can keep it. >> well, here's the bottom line. you have about 15 million people who buy insurance on their own right now, meaning they're not getting it through their employer. it's that population of people we're talking about specifically. what has ha
media just happens to be shocked by it as well. >> sure. >> jay carney is like wrestling cats, as they say. they used to want to focus on ed henry. now you have every reporter putting up their hand and you can't say, well, fox, the people at fox. now he's got to play it straight and answer these questions. and the president's going to have trouble shaking his repeated statements about keeping their plan. because the people he wrote were grandfathered into the plan, you can't force an insurance company to continue to insure someone if their math doesn't add up. >> because they squeezed the language in there with obamacare, whereas before they say, you could keep your insurance. no one will have to get out of it. they have to keep you. well, no, there is language in there that says if they even change their co-pay to $5 more, they can drop you. >> they're out. >> that's what's happening. >> a total escape from responsibility here in terms of keeping those that are insured and we're going to maybe hear some answers from kathleen sebelius. who knows? those that are going to questi
. jay carney was asked about, hey, what's the number going to be? he is now tamping down expectations, as well he should. watch. >> if you're asking me will enrollment be low, the answer is yes because that was always going to be the case. >> oh really? how come the first thing you said the reason you can't get on is the high volume. and how many democrats do we hearsay there is high volume because people really love this thing. six really loved it the first day. >> how can you assess low if you don't have a number? that is what is interesting as well. they're saying we don't have the information but it's low. you must be looking at something to give that low assessment. >> the website has been disastrous. i've got to give the president credit, he said seven weeks ago, he asked is it ready and they told him it was ready. again punting and blaming, not taking responsibility. that's the vice president trying to save the president, who has been busy lately, i guess, all summer. now let's talk about the other element to this. the report we told you about yesterday that insurance companies
enough to say that -- >> they haven't contested the numbers. jay carney came out on friday and presented these numbers. >> you're a web master. you're a master of many things. you're also a web master. you were on the daily call.com. fantastic political website. if i wanted to know, tucker, how many people visited your site between the 8:00 a.m. hour and 9:00 a.m. hour on sunday, can you tell me that? >> i can tell you how many people are on the site right now, where they live, probably some other information. it's really easy. anybody who knows anything about the web will tell you, this is the whole point. every data point is measurable. we know everything. so we don't know? untrue. >> more news this morning and you're going to sit at home today and watch some nfl football, you might not know what's been going on wind the scenes, specifically with the players union, the players association that handles sort of the emotional well being of the nfl players. of course, they've been dealing lately with all the concussion issues in the nfl. you think that would be top priority for them right
